Postage Stamp Quilt/Wilderness Quilt

I love postage stamp quilts!!! This one I call my "Wilderness Quilt". I totally hand pieced this quilt during a time when we were in a transition stage for our family and I needed to keep my hands busy. My goal was to use recurring fabrics but to not have any identical blocks - but I do have two blocks that are the same. My children and some of their friends would make nine-patch combinations for me, so it became a family project. I have not yet quilted it - not sure what design I want to use - any suggestions? And I had other projects take first place so the top has been set aside. I was blogging and one of my favorite blogs is "Inspired by Antique Quilts" and when I saw Kathie's postage stamp nine-patches I just had to share. I thought I was seeing double!!! Way to go Kathie!!! My second daughter is stitching a postage stamp quilt like yours and she does it in small sections, too.


Kathie just made a clarification for me! My nine patch is not a true postage stamp quilt, but a nine patch made with small squares! Thanks Kathie

I love your nine patch quilt with sashing and cornerstones. I love nine patch blocks, never get tired of looking at them and never get tired of making them!
thanks for sharing yours.
would love to see your daughters postage stamp quilt that she is making like the one I showed on my blog

Wow, that was a big project for hand piecing! I love it!
I also follow Kathie's blog and your quilt does remind me of her postage stamp quilt.
